"Native Bees of Maryland" presented by Gene Scarpulla
Did you know that there are approximately 4000 species of bees in the
United States, 800 species east of the Mississippi River, and over 400
species in Maryland? Little is known about the populations of most of
these species. In 2009, Gene Scarpulla conducted a yearlong survey of
the bees on Hart-Miller Island in the Chesapeake Bay to increase our
knowledge of Maryland's bees. Gene will give a brief overview of the
history of Hart-Miller Island, describe his yearlong survey, discuss
general bee biology and identification (bees vs. wasps vs. flies
[mimics]), and show the amazing diversity of Marylandís bees.
